Welcome to Yetiland Walshypw.

Interesting you felt the rear brake discs needed swapping out. With so few miles, I’m guessing they were pretty badly corroded, but perhaps not all that heavily worn? At least with the smaller diameter discs on the rear of a 1.2 TSi, it’s a straightforward job. No need for the carrier bracket to be removed.

(I put new Brembo discs all round on our Yeti just before lockdown. So now on its third set of discs in 223,000 miles. So expecting those to be good to nearer the 300 milestone.)

Also interesting what you say about the handling compared to a Golf. Given most of the mechanical bits are the same, perhaps not totally out of order, but does indeed surprise many how such a tall riding car can handle OK, when the suspension set up is so Goldilocks ( just right).

You can look forward to discovering just how amazingly versatile the Yeti is, next time you have some large or awkwardly shaped loads to transport. I’ve even had a full height grandfather clock in the back of ours (with two of the rear seats out and the front passenger seat folded flat forward.

Looking forward to some contributions on how you tackled other DIY jobs on the Yeti - but then again, I expect those will be confined to just routine servicing for a long time yet. (y)

An excellent analogy.

Welcome to the world of the yeti :)

Why not add you car details to your signature line then any questions are easier to answer for other members.

I thought his name was Peter?
I prefer to use Pete’s Avatar name rather than real name.

My name isn’t really “Henry Flintstone” either. :rolleyes: Although I have entered motorsport related events under the pseudonym “Fred Flintstone” and for a time, held a mock competition licence in that name, suitably made for me by the same people at the Mortorsports Association (in Colnbrook at the time), who printed the real licences and who were totally “in” on the whole thing. Also competed in the Rallye des Pas des Dittons themselves.

I hope Mrs Flintstone doesn't look at the forum :eek:

The Hood is a work nickname. I was sat queuing in a Toby Carvery when a work colleague came up to swmbo and said "Hello, I'm Chris, you must be Mrs Hood". He was so disappointed by the the lack of reaction, his face was a picture.

Safe there - so far. Mrs Flintstone doesn’t frequent these parts.
She is however considerably more active in Mark Zuckerberg’s face ache thing than I am. Or was, till events In early May. Those have curbed her enthusiasm for much of anything.

I do! Thanks. Correcting now.
Got my names well and truly cross wired today! :(
Better go and flush the brake fluid in the KA, ahead of its MOT on Tuesday. That would be more useful perhaps?
